In brief: Not directly
Some may have significant field defects with enough loss to compromise the color receptive portions of the retina.
An example is retinitis pigmentosa, an inherited degeneration of the retina causing construction of the field of vision and loss of color vision. Ordinary color vision deficits are genetically determined and do not occur with field defects.

In brief: Depends on cause
There are many causes of vf defects.
Some involve peripheral vision, some more central vision. If problem in intraocular, color vision can be associated.
